Lovely atmosphere, nice food and friendly staff.
We initially booked a table for 2 and called last minute to add an extra person and the staff were very accommodating and helpful in doing this.

We hadn’t been to Bijou for a while-and we were so happy we went again.It was a very enjoyable evening-the food was excellent(small menu but delicious and well executed).The staff were efficient and friendly and the overall experience felt like a nice treat.It was outdoor dining and the sunshine helped but they are reopening next week for indoor too and we wish them luck and will be back.A quality neighbourhood restaurant.

Perfect in nearly every way. The only issue is that the portions were so generous I had no room for dessert.

I know it’s Dublin, I know it’s Rathgar but expensive for the portions and what you’re getting. Also, it’s not the restaurants fault but the outdoor dining experience of sitting on the footpath isn’t pleasant. Food was delicious though and great staff, I just wish Dublin restaurants weren’t so expensive when serving very normal food.

staff extremely attentive and friendly and food fantastic.
its reassuring to see the restaurant run so well in these Covid-19 times.
We felt completely safe and relaxed as all safety measures were implemented above and beyond government guidelines.

First time dining out since July so this may change reaction. Table inside door beside till not very comfortable,avoid if possible.The lunch starters were not very good,salad covering hot onion tart a bit strange and pastry case hard and bought in. The main courses were very good especially the fish,and so would return as chef obviously good.
